Last Monday November 13th, within the framework of the European informative and promotional campaign “Discover the Shapes of Taste – Made in EU”, came to the Flower City of China, Guangzhou. Nearly 30 professional media of the dairy sector, influencers and food lovers were invited to a press dinner event to experience “European flavors, Italian treats” together.

First, the host introduced us to the Discover the Shapes of Taste Made in EU project and Assolatte, the private industrial Italian Milk and Dairy association, founded in 1945 as the national body responsible for representing and protecting the economic and trade interests of the Italian dairy industry. The European milk and dairy isector was presented in its balanced development with respect for the environment, animal health and sustainability. Thousands of miles away, Assolatte President Zanetti through a video message shared his greetings to the guests in this event. Later on, it was time to officially enter our topic today.

After the meal, the guests exchanged some interesting topics with the chef and nutritionist. For example, how to choose the intake of dairy products for people who want to lose weight and those who are lactose intolerant, and how to match dairy products for pregnant women. Everyone not only enjoyed the food, but also gained a lot of information about this interesting sector, looking forward to see Italian milk and dairy products on the table in Guangzhou as soon as possible.
